Hello y’all, how is January treating you? Ready for Spring? Over here we can’t complain about the cold, winter hasn’t truly arrived yet. But I do feel that ‘short days-blues’ settling in. I really am a sunshine girl, I can’t wait for the day when it is still light when I cycle home, and when I don’t feel I need to turn on the lights in the middle of the day.
Anyway. January is not my most productive time of the year. I need some inspiration and motivation to get me going again. So what better way than to look at what I managed to do last year.
Here are my favorite craft projects I did in 2013.
Oh, I should get this again. My attic could do with another round of office organization. What is it about the new year that makes us want to clear out our closets?
These fur pillows are back on the couch as we speak. If you like them you might like my how to sew faux fur pillows tutorial too.
With the very soft winter we are having, some of my roses are still blooming!
But still this next project makes me long for easy summer days……
Definitely my favorite project of 2013. My African feather Juju hat tutorial. They have migrated to a new location. If I can get some daylight photography time, I’ll show you their new home.
But they did look good on my mantel too, didn’t they!
My bedroom got a little much needed attention last year. Adding a blanket, a mirror and some new options for decorations make it more cozy, beautiful and functional in one go 😀
My blue blanket update definitely upped the cozy, snuggly factor of my bedroom. The other little updates have proven to be here for the long run too. I still love them. Why did I wait so long for this bedroom update? (and why do I ask myself this after every project? Oh, yeah, I forgot I am an eternal procrastinator…..).
What a little extra hanging space can do for a girls mood…..
Jeez, most of these projects were so easy and quick to do, there really is no reason for me to not get crafting again…..
So are you up and running in the new year? Or has the winter blues gotten a hold of you too and are you still like me, all melancholy and looking back, not ready yet to go full-force ahead?
